We were honored to be a sponsor and to be present at Childrenz Challenge on August 13, 2016 at Michigan International Speedway! For those of you who don't know, Childrenz Challenge is a muddy obstacle course designed for children ages 4-13 years of age. Two courses were within the event; ages 4-8 competed on a 1 ½ mile course, and ages 9-13 competed on a 2-mile course. We had a blast!
Childrenz Challenge held the Michigan Community Credit Union School Challenge, which awards the top four schools that have the most participating students, based on percentage, with prize money. Childrenz Challenge awarded fourth place with $500 to Ezra Eby Elementary, third place with $1,000 to Onsted Elementary, and second place with $2,000 to Columbia Elementary. We awarded $5,000 to Queen of the Miraculous Medal as the first place winner! “Childrenz Challenge is such a great event. My own two kids have participated in this event every year, and to see their confidence and sense of accomplishment at the finish line is amazing,” said Liz Hoffius, Marketing Manager at Michigan Community Credit Union. “We’re proud to sponsor the School Challenge and award these funds to a school here in our community.”
Childrenz Challenge’s purpose is to create a fun and entertaining event for children and their families, support the community, and contribute to local charities and participating schools. "The Childrenz Challenge has been proud to partner with Michigan Community Credit Union for the School Challenge and the Teacher Challenge. Michigan Community Credit Union and the Childrenz Challenge combined have dispersed over $18,000 to local schools in two short years. We are honored that Michigan Community Credit Union continues to support this great event and we're looking forward to working with them in the future," said Scott Vitale, President and Founder of Childrenz Challenge. Registration for the 2017 Childrenz Challenge is now open. For more information, please visit childrenzchallenge.com.
